What Ceramic Floor Tiles Can Bring to Your Home

When it comes to floor tiles your choices at first can be a bit overwhelming. Deciding which design, which material and which pattern will probably be some of the most difficult decisions you’ll make, but let’s make things easier by discussing ceramic floor tiles and the advantages they can bring to your home. And you’re in luck, for ceramic tiles bring many. It’s because of these advantages that ceramic tiles have become one of the most popular tile choices in the United Kingdom and the USA.

What Ceramic Floor Tiles Can Bring to Your Home

Resistant to Moisture, Chemicals and Scratches

The first advantage to ceramic floor tiles is that they’re highly resistant to moisture, chemicals and scratches. This means that your tiles will last longer than other types of materials, and can also be washed regularly without fear of damage or loss of integrity. The resistance to scratches also makes them ideal for areas expecting heavy foot traffic, such as the wall way or a family kitchen.

Easy to Clean

Another advantage behind ceramic tiles is that they’re easy to clean. Unlike, say, wood or particularly porous types of stone, the surface of a ceramic floor tile is very smooth. This makes it much harder for dirty and stains to soak into the tile, and also makes cleaning said dirt and stains from the tiles that much easier. Because the tiles are so resistant to moisture as well, you can be very liberal with water and soap.

This again makes these tiles ideal for the kitchen and the hallway, where you can expect there to be a fair amount of mess from cooking and muddy feet respectively.

Environmentally Friendly

Ceramic floor tiles are made from completely natural materials, most usually clay, sand and glass. As such they cause very little damage to the environment, whether during their manufacture or when they are disposed of. This puts them in direct opposition to plastics, which may cause damage to the environment.

Cost Effect and Good for Home Value

On average ceramic floor tiles are cheap to buy and cheap to lay down, especially in comparison to some other tiles out there. Of all of them, ceramics offer a good balance of cost and performance, being relatively inexpensive while providing years, potentially decades, of service in your home. Even if they do break due to some accident, they’re actually very easy to replace, so always keep a few spare ceramic tiles handy.

What’s more they also add value to your home, precisely because ceramic tiles are such a long term investment. This makes ceramic floor tiles ideal if you plan on selling your home on at a later date.
